As per the title, we are done with Canada. I got the numbers for my pension cash out, and combined with our savings/ investments, we should be able to have enough to live on until old age ($25K+ US a year until 60, then $30K+ from 60-65, then $40K+ after that). As I have stated in other threads, we live a rather frugal lifestyle, and even here in Canada don’t spend that much.
The above amount is without working. We have no intention of not working, and would both like to work part time doing something.
The big issue is that Taiwan is not ready for us right now. Our plan right now is to chill and travel in Mexico from February to June or so, and then we will re-evaluate.
We have a few options in mind right now (all of which are after Mexico in June 2022):
- A trip to Europe for a few months
- Digital nomading around SE Asia: 3 months Thailand, 3 months Malaysia, 3 months Bali, 3 months Vietnam.(probably doing writing/editing )
- #1 followed by #2
- Taiwan after Mexico
- Taiwan after any of the above
We have some time to figure things out (and a house to sell). Our plan is to leave on January 31, which will come soon I am sure!!
Note: We are excited and really want to get out of this place!!
